The fourth movement of this work brings together all the other three, mixing themes like the tributaries of a bigger river, and adds a new one, drawing directly on the regenerative slogan Sheffield adopted in the 1970's. Looking back on this student work, I feel the need to assure the listner that no mind-enhancing substances, not even alcohol, were consumed in its creation. Much of it originated from piano improvisations, but not until I realised it with Sibelius did it make me wonder what I had unleashed. I have tried to keep the roughness of the original intact, rounding out the symphony on a positive note. Mail me for parts.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
